I gave this a 3 for a few reasons. I'll tell my story. Okay, so I was at sephora and I went up to a worker and asked her if she could help me find a foundation that was full coverage, light enough for my skin tone, and not heavy feeling. ( I only ask for full coverage because I have freckles and some redness and freckles can be quite hard to cover.) So she took me to this product, got 117, & applied it with a sponge. It felt pretty nice on my skin and was a perfect match and evened out my skin tone. So I immediately bought it. It's a splurge if you're my age. (42 US dollars) But I thought hey, i have tried so many foundations and if this is the right one for me, Its worth the money. So anyway, I have been using it and it seems OK except it made me VERY oily! I am a combination skin and I am normally dry. So I normally do not get oily. I had to blot and use setting powder. It also doesn't have great staying power. Only about 6-7 hours. But the shade selection was great and it DOES match my skin. Which is one of the pros. It also has medium to buildable coverage . It can make your skin feel like its suffocating, though. But that's why i gave it a three- because it makes my t-zone quite oily.
